Games I beat in 2015: #11 -
Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 (Replay, plus bonus content)
I've played iOS ports of games I've enjoyed many times, but this may be the first time I played a console or computer release after the iOS version. Long story short, the iOS port is better.
Well, maybe just compared to the OS X port. I wondered why the fourth game didn't have a port when I picked it up on Halloween last year but after seeing how 3 turned out, I supposed they just didn't want to bother. There is a lot of tearing and it feels a bit, well, "lazy" feels rude but perhaps they didn't have as much time or budget to spend on it as they would have liked.
I mostly got it for the bonus content. A between Episode 2 and 3 chapter explained a few things, namely where that "you" character went. That was fine. I don't want "me" in games. But the game explained the gap between 2 and 3, so that was nice.
These "RPG-lite" games are neat, quick little play-throughs, but I find a lot of the sales points to be a bit too limiting in the end. Beats a whack on the head though.
